Dr. Anne Hendershott, professor of Sociology and director of the Veritas Center for Ethics in Public Life, elaborates on rape accusations on college campuses, and the reactions of politicians, with consideration towards recent sexual assault accusations.
For nearly a decade, progressive politicians like Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) helped to create a culture that has denied due process protections to college students accused of sexual harassment and assault. Convinced that college campuses had become havens for rapists, Senator Gillibrand and her progressive peers in the Senate helped to usher in new federal requirements under Title IX.
